    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good. A lot of paid time off, tuition reimbursement, stout 401k match.

    Cons

    Lack of promoting from within the company. Often management will bring people from the outside who have to lean heavily on current employees rather than just promoting from within.

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A good company with the opportunity to be great. Has some operational inefficiencies that if fixed could be better. Communication is a struggle at times but it depends what team you’re on.

    Cons

    It’s never enough. Customer service takes a backseat to revenue. Supervisors and tech teams have horrible communication and will not help anyone but themselves.

    Pros

    - Good pay (because of the union) - Great industry/trade - Great benefits (because of the union) - Plenty of work/hours, and OT - Company puts safety and PPE before everything

    Cons

    - The pay is only good because of the union - Management team is awful. They don't know elevators and only pretend to care about your safety as a mechanic - Over promise to the customer and expect mechanics to make up for this mistake - Stressful, dangerous job
